I see that the cat is out of the bag.
Yes, we are launching the Cinema Reference Mach IV at CES and for anyone interested in seeing her, please stop by Suite 30-311 at the Venetian.
As for the 16 channel expansion, that will be via a FireWire connection that has yet to make it onto the prototype. By the time we begin shipping units in Q2, it will be there.
The price is not yet set in stone (but we are taking orders
. That said, expect it to be north of the numbers mentioned here most likely close to $40k. Unfortunately, you can't simply add up TEQ versions to arrive at a price. There is much more involved in order to handle potentially 32 channels.
Wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2012.
